What went so right?
>team based hero shooter. >more popular than overwatch 2 and tf2 combined
>team based hero shooter
Yes but it has much fewer cheaters.
how are there even cheaters with riot vangaurd in your root?
There aren't 🙂
Hacking little turd.
>more popular than overwatch 2 and tf2 combined
Then how come the only time I hear about this game is when you come to this board to shill it?
Was wondering this same thing. I haven't heard about bootleg babby CS since a few months after it came out.
>Then how come the only time I hear about this game is when you come to this board to shill it?
Because Ganker doesn't play any game that is remotely difficult. It clings to the other aforementioned games because you can eat adhesive paste and still participate. However, valorant is objectively exponentially more popular than both those games. If you don't hear about it outside of Ganker it's because you live in a bubble.
nah. I've never seen a valorant video on youtube either. The game just isn't that popular. Also valorant is insanely low skill. Even apex is harder kek
There are currently 750,000 people playing Valorant, more than double the amount of people playing Apex. And this is dead hours for the game.
Riot doesn't publish player count data.
True, this is only the amount of players caught on player tracking, so the number might be much higher.
Why would I kneel? I like and play CSGO all the time.
All third world shitholes. Valorant has won the countries that matter.
>All third world shitholes
and Valorant isn't?
742500 chink bots
It's all on tiktok. Valorant is peak zoomer
Apex is hard as fuck, genuinely the hardest shooter I've played in a very long time
Apex is also one of the most pozzed game
I don't think it even has a straight white male character
they literally just added an old british dude
he's also seemingly straight
Caustic has been in since release
Because you only post on Ganker. I honestly can't think of any other explanation.
Valorant is designed for the zoomer tiktok demographic
it doesn't overlap with the Ganker demographic
>Then how come the only time I hear about this game is when you come to this board to shill it?
Chinese audience, anon.
Same reason you don't hear much discussion of brawlhalla despite it having more players on steam than any fighting game. It's marketed to actual children and people who've never played a video game before.
CSGO clone, made by Riot Chinks, that was aggressively marketed
Surely you aren't going to pretend RIOT is more cancerous than actiblizz.
It's actually a CS 1.6 clone
It's more popular that whatever garbage you play for a reason hehe
You literally have to be mentally ill to play competitive PvP/FPS games. Makes sense why shit like this & Apex are such wokeslop.
Normie games never have a higher skill cealing higher than older games,
>wooow you made a kill, heres your cool sound and a gigant skull in your hud
Why is Ganker bad at it then? No TF2 player here is good at valorant. In fact, they won't play valorant because they can't cope with the knowledge they will get their shit stomped by the gender fluid 12 year olds that make up RIOTs core fanbase despite have thousands of hours in TF2, because it's a party game.
Because at his core, tf2 is a casual game, not meant for comp gayry which even with that has a more solid competitive potential by his engine alone. A rocket jump isn't hard but a rollout is and the shit a half demonight can pull out with the loose cannon and tide turner needs practice. The thing that has more reassemble to tf2 rocket jump in ow is the junkrat jump and the shitty bastion bomb jump, in ow you only need your mechanics which are more limited by the engine, which heroes are broken and the abilitys cooldowns, you could say that league is the same but not really, in that game macro alone can win games, that doesn't exist in ow when you have only one objective. Going back to valorant, the game is very team oriented, in tf2 12v12 its common that a medic demo can carry the game but its very rare a player can solo lost you the game, in valorant you can't afford a 4v5, you need team coordination but you won't find any since the game has that ego element too, as i said earlier the skull in your hud, the gays that peek instead of holding an angle just for the ego play and the fact that fancy skin effects appear when you are good. At is core valorant is a worst version of CSGO that wants to be both a team game and a ego game with cumbait for normie fags, trannies and horny teenagers. The same way ow is a worst tf2, and lol a dumbed dota, valorant is counter strike for gays
Valorant is a hero shooter, it's tf2 but popular and good. All multiplayer games are competitive. No one is playing to lose.
>Tf2 but popular
Tf2 since release has been icon for internet, the most relevant steam f2p besides dota, even the zoomies know the funny pootis, its always listed as the most played games on steam
Bots aren't a huge part on the players since valve done the bots prune you could send the shady player count that says half of the players are bots, but that data as i said is shady shit that will only bring us to an argument loop hole
Simply not true, the game design of tf2 is superb, the sillouetes, the weapons design, the maps, the spaghetti code engine is great, the balance overall is decent.
I will give you that valorant is well designed as well but it has that flaw that i stated earliy, the team focus and ego contradion, you can't see shit like in
and the zoomie garden gnome practices
>the most relevant steam f2p besides dota,
What? No it's not, not even close lmao
>Simply not true, the game design of tf2 is superb, the sillouetes, the weapons design, the maps, the spaghetti code engine is great, the balance overall is decent.
TF2 has awful maps and balance.
I have no idea what you mean by this post.
>TF2 has awful maps
You don't play tf2
You only played dustbowl? The maps have plenty of space, the medikits placements are done with scout in mind, and others spots with engie in mind, i could go on but I'll just be repeating the devs commentary
Are you like those player that still seethes about not being able to snipe anymore with the amby? The balance is good, for example. Most default melees arent good just for inaction, the unlockable melees just provide utility, and even with that you can't just replace your main weapons for melee unless you are playing demonight but you need a shield anyway so doesn't count, the other weapons are mostly side grades, the only blatant weapon upgrade is the crussaders crossbow, but anything is better than the syringe gun with is a shit weapon on porpoise, is designed to teach the medic not to fight because hes a healer not a fighter, that just reinforces my point about the design. Also you can unlock the sandwich by the first achievement milestone so its fine
>You don't play tf2
I do though, and the map selection is the worst it has ever been. What's passable for official map rotation now is embarassing, valve doesn't care about the game any more and has no quality control.
Just pick the maps you like and don't pick the maps you don't like? You have all the maps in the game for that matter, besides not every new map is woodville, some are good
Maps are what make a good FPS, TF2 has never had a map that is genuinely good and it hasn't had a passable map in over a decade. TF2 maps are really, really bad.
yeah i dont know about that.
After watching the ads i thought it was some zoomie shooter but it's just a CS custom private server
Nublizz is for manchildren, homos and women and OW fed on battle net fans
>After watching the ads i thought it was some zoomie shooter but it's just a CS custom private server
Pretty much, the only reason I don't play it more is because the playerbase is too friendly compared to CS, if that makes sense, but I still do like it.
Why would I play this unbalanced chinese piece of shit instead of CSGO or the upcoming CS2? Also, explain to me which fucking RETARD thought it was a good idea to add stun mechanics to a tactical FPS.
Val has been steadily losing players for a while now bc of CS. I imagine it'll tank even more when CS2 comes out. You love to see it 🙂
You don't play CS.
And you don't have a functioning dick. What do you even mean?
If you played CS you'd play valorant or would have played valorant at some point, these games are not mutually exclusive, unless it's in the pro circuit, and you're definitely not in that. Valorant has introduced a lot of kids to the CS formula and is inarguably responsible for the 500k extra players CSGO picked up after the CS2 announcement. It's devious garden gnome behavior to hide behind games you do not play.
I've played both you autistic gay. Also what was the point of your comment when you reaffirmed me original statement? No shit Val, the last major, and CS2 is boosting the player numbers but that's not all. The game has been growing for months and was breaking records before any of that shit. I can tell you're just some cunt who tried to switch over from Val but failed bc you couldn't rely on ur retarded wall back abilities kek
>I've played both you autistic gay
No you don't.
Any self respecting fps player knows that valorant is dogshit made for soulless goys, third worlders and chinks. They NEED that gayry they NEED those simple abilities and shit skinned anime operators. Throwing grenades with correct trajectory is too hard, they need it to be 1 simple point and click experience. Game sense and knowledge? Who needs all that when you can have wallhacks and stuns. Consequences for having shit aim? Pff who cares just heal up bro. Just press your ultimate button and win the round Ramjesh. Dont forget to spend your rupees on new rainbow dragon dildo knife or e girl wont ever show you boba
>Consequences for having shit aim? Pff who cares just heal up bro
The main weapon is an AK-47 equivalent that one shots full armor on headshot, just like CS, and the AWP equivalent is less useful so it's not like you can fish for body shots all day.
>Any self respecting fps player
Why did all the top players in every single FPS game move to it then
Washed up NA puggers thats never won anything are in the "third worlders" and "soulless goys" categories. They essentially pulled MtF transition for easier competition
Most of the top 10 players in every relevant FPS moved to valorant. This fact is not debatable.
not a single top10 CS pro moved to valorant, only people that were banned, were washed up or could only play for tier 2 did for the cash
ScreaM was rated top 10 in 2013 and is now jobbing on the worst Valorant team with Nivera.
lol, Valorant is literally known as the NA player retirement home in the pro scene
You'd have to be very clueless to think "all the top players" moved to it
To get that VC $$$$
The fact that this game runs on toasters is really underappreciated. I wish people would go back to making games for computers people have instead of the ones they want.
>I wish people would go back to making games for computers people have instead of the ones they want
It's less about making games for computers and more about making games for the latest consoles.
>Its a game only survives because its huge in ASIA episode
All the US CSGO players moved to Valorant. US and Asia > EU and Brazil
I never ever hear about this game and you just reminded me it exists. Obviously not that popular.
Well guess I better start posting about it A LOT more.
You're just going to make me hate it by proxy of trying to shove it in my face.
You don't have to enter the threads. I'm not going to let people spread disinformation and pretend it doesn't exist just because you don't want to see a game you'll never play anyways. People are shilling dying absolute dumpster garbage Halo and CoD and shit, clearly we need to start talking about relevant current year shooters in earnest and this is far preferable to fortnite.
wowo he's very skilled guys
Ok, 0:38 is suHispanicious as hell.
The normal wallbang that people like to spam
is fine since he's already seen the dude and is only dipping and shooting the wall around where the opponent is.
But this shit is pretty blatant
Do you still make money when you announce your shilling?
Either way, bold tactic.
>Do you still make money when you announce your shilling?
RIOT pays me in rice.
>higher skill ceiling than TF
im not even a tf player and this is the weakest bait ive ever seen
>kernel level invasive spyware by Tencent
No thank you!
anyone that installs this is a retard
Valorant is just CSGO with lots of bussy.
It's literally just CS:GO but worse
you don't play csgo
Abortion of CS with shit abilities added.
still an objectively better hero shooter than overwatch and tf2
>na is so shit in cs:go they have to make another clone game so they can be good at something
EU has over 15x the playerbase of NA if anything NA is over represented in the pro scene for how small it is.
I play CS instead cause I can call people morons without getting banned
It's just CS but worse in every way. Not sure why you'd directly compare it to TF2 or Overwatch unless you've never played any FPS ever.
>Not sure why you'd directly compare it to TF2
Because it's a class based hero shooter.
>tf2 is better than uh, strawman
>what about this game
>n-no, doesn't count
They play completely differently. The fact that you think they're similar shows you probably don't actually play any games. There is more in common between Mortal Kombat and Smash Bros than there is Valorant and TF2.
>They play completely differently
Yeah because tf2 is shit and valorant isn't.
It's really nothing like TF2 or Overwatch though. If this is a hero shooter and those are hero shooters then the term is too broad to mean anything.
The game is counter strike except instead of everyone getting access to smokes and flashes you choose what utility you get access to at the start of the game. Every character's most important and impactful ability is getting headshots with the same guns as everyone else.
>you choose what utility you get access to at the start of the game
You have to buy the utilities like grenades. However, like tf2, you have game changing special abilities. It's a hero shooter.
The term is too broad to mean anything. R6 Siege is a "hero shooter" too. It doesn't actually describe the broader gameplay just a feature. It only serves to confuse retards like the anon you're replying to who think it's a useful descriptor.
You have special abilities that let you move around in unique ways, buff your team, debuff the other team, etc. It's a hero shooter. When you make a category so specific that it can't compare it to anything else you are just creating a hugbox immune from criticism, ie. "every game where you can't just hold W from spawn to the payload like a tard is bad because I only like terrible tf2 gameplay." It's like the people who defend elder scrolls because it's a shitty franchise no one makes an identical copy of.
"hero shooter" means fucking nothing though as evidenced by the fact that Valorant, TF2 and Siege all play completely differently you inbred cum slurper.
Then I guess it means nothing and tf2 should just be compared to shooters as a whole, so we're back to valorant being better than tf2.
Do you even have a point that you're trying to make?
They don't play similarly at all and valorant isn't better than anything since it's literally a shitty version of CS.
I don't know if you're just some underage retard from a third world country who's never played a video game and can only afford to shitpost on your older brother's phone or you're some underage retard who just feels the need to argue in bad faith constantly for attention but you're really just incapable of understanding anything let alone fundamental mechanics of different video games.
Why does the truth make you so upset?
csgo for e-dating asians named shit like kevin
How many pvp games does Ganker talk about at all?
Ganker is mostly phoneposters here for the twitter screencap threads and barely disguised 4chan threads these days so you don't get much actual game discussion let alone discussion of games that involve pvp. More niche games are easier to get discussion for because you don't have a flock of gays descending onto the thread to immediately shitpost because they only know the most popular titles and anything that doesn't make the trending tab of twitter confuses them.
You can tell from the character designs and artstyle that valorant and overwatch devs are full of trannies. That is why I will never ever play those games. Thank you for understand.
